Sunday we will honor those who have graduated from high school or college this year. We recognize the hard work that has gotten these grads to this place, and we celebrate this special milestone with them.
Ministry Expo A Huge Blessing
Last week we emphasized the different ministries of our church and asked our church family to consider the opportunities to make a difference. At the end of the weekend, scores of cards were turned in, reflecting the willingness of our church family to serve the Lord. We have worked hard this past week to contact those who volunteered through phone, email and text message. We praise the Lord for His working in our midst!
Safety Response Team Meeting Sunday Night; Other Ministry Meetings Coming
The first of the follow-up meetings from the Ministry Expo happens Sunday night after the evening service. This vital ministry has been in great need of help, and we thank the Lord for the response received during the Ministry Expo. Whether you are already involved, filled out a card last week, or are interested and willing, join us for a brief meeting after the Family Service Sunday night.
Memorial Day Picnic, Coming Sunday, May 30
Next Sunday afternoon we will enjoy a picnic at Phelps Grove Park in place of our Sunday evening service. We’re not quite ready to get back to shared covered dishes, so everyone will need to bring your own picnic meal. The church will provide drinks and ice cream! Bring your blanket, lawn chairs, outdoor games and join us for a great time of fellowship and fun together.
Wednesday Next Steps
Beginning June 2, we will launch Next Steps, a new format for our Wednesday evening services. Read the Next Steps class descriptions below to help you identify and take your next step in your walk with the Lord.
First Step Class – a study series for new believers and/or for those who desire to shore up the foundations of their Christian life. Though not required it can be a starting point for those interested in becoming a part of our CSBC Family.
Second Step Class – a study series based on the “Improving Your Serve” curriculum, for those who are growing in their faith and desire a greater understanding of the ongoing purposes of God for their life.
Next Step Class – an ongoing series of Bible studies designed to provide followers of Jesus with a pathway to walk on as they become more like Jesus and advance His work.
Wednesday Next Steps will help every believer to CONNECT to the Lord and this church; GROW in their walk with the Lord and SERVE the Lord in every stage of their Christian life.
Text “Next” to the church number 417.889.1999 to register for the step you want to take.
